Privacy can be hard to come by these days. With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to keep most of us at home throughout each day, we can sometimes find ourselves stepping over our family members. This can be quite concerning for everyone in the household – especially the seniors. Older adults often need constant care and supervision.
